Living Wage for Wales

Living Wage
For Wales

The Living Wage for Wales is a collaborative effort to promote the benefits of Living Wage accreditation for employers, workers and the economy in Wales.

About the Living Wage for Wales

Cynnal Cymru is the Living Wage accreditation partner for Wales. We work in partnership with the Living Wage Foundation and other leading organisations to support employers with accreditation and work towards achieving the Living Wage for all workers in Wales.

Cynnal Cymru uses its employer networks and understanding of how organisations operate to help them overcome barriers to accreditation.

Cynnal Cymru also plays an important role in promotion of the Living Wage to employers.

For the real cost of living

The real Living Wage is based on the cost of living and voluntarily paid by hundreds of employers in Wales, and thousands of employers across the UK.

Join a movement of leading organisations

Capital Law, Wales Council for Voluntary Action WCVA, Cardiff University, Cardiff Council, Brecon Carreg, Careers Wales, Wales Co-operative Centre and the Cardiff third Sector Council. A full list of accredited organisations can be found on the Living Wage foundation website. They join employers across the UK ranging from FTSE 100 companies such as HSBC, Unilever and KPMG to small independent businesses who are choosing to go further than the government minimum wage and ensure that all their staff and onsite contractors earn the real Living Wage which meets the cost of living.
Paying the real Living Wage to employees is vital to developing a sustainable economy in Wales and developing Cynnal Cymru’s mission to make Wales a sustainable nation. Cynnal Cymru are looking forward to working with new employees across Wales to implement a Living Wage within their businesses.
